The work 12 Postdated Checks deals with one of the burning issues in the Israeli public debate recently – the housing shortage. Many young people find themselves in a vicious race whose participants compete for nearly uninhabitable apartments. The search for the ultimate apartment invites countless grotesque situations. The work delves precisely into those moments in a humorous performance that combines text and movement.
In 12 Postdated Checks i work with 20 young dancers and with my former roommate.
This creation was first developed from a theater-performance/tour for Rega-Ehad#2 art event at Tel-Aviv city hall.
